    In a database of 1,047,571 records (when last I checked) errors are
    bound to turn up now and again. As more and more informative data gets
    added, it's going to need fixing sometimes.

    Far from being disappointed, I commend you for your tirelessness in
    this thankless task. Unihan will never be more than what people make of
    it. You have clearly made a lot of it.
